the big prize tomorrow. and this is new video of the former imf chief being released. his accuser told substantial lies about her own background and the facts of this case. earlier i spoke to our legal guys about the strauss-kahn case. and they were fired up. >> i think this is the most electrifying legal development of the year, and i'm not going to be critical by the way of prosecution. they had forensics, they really didn't have a choice. this guy was gone. and the fact is that the opportunity for prosecution to develop the case, to get it to the grand jury was a relatively short window, but the -- to its credit, cyrus vance went public yesterday and said, look, there are such severe credibility issues that if we're going to do justice, at least in terms of meeting its burden beyond a reasonable doubt, the case has
4:03 pm
to end, it just must end. and cyrus vance did the right thing. >> what's going on here, richard? yes, avery underscored there is some forensic evidence substantiating that something, there was some sort of contact between these two, at least that's the allegation and investigators want to stand by that, but they have a problem with the story of the alleged victim. how is it that perhaps -- i guess the story really needs to supercede that forensic evidence or at least match it and that's the problem here, it just doesn't match? >> fred, the great yogi berra coined the phrase it's not over till it's over, this case is over. this case will be dismissed and there's no way they can prosecute him for this. >> no way even if there's forensic evidence, there's no way they can go in regard. >> the defense says it was
4:04 pm
consensual, number one, and this victim has now proven to be a liar on many issues, including, claiming he was gang raped, raped back in her own country. that was a lie. you cannot have a rape victim on the stand with her credibility on the line who previously claimed to have been raped and was not, that's for starters, 24 hours after the arrest, there's a jailhouse telephone conversation with her and her boyfriend who's in prison in arizona. and during the conversation, she is telling him, don't worry, this guy has a lot of money and i know what i'm doing. >> all right, avery and richard, there, always strong on all the cases that we cover. the media frenzy surrounding the dominic strauss-kahn story has been unbelievable. one photographer actually got into a scuffle outside of the strauss-kahn townhouse. police set up barriers across

4:09 pm
when she began the talk, a river of lies just kept coming out of her mouth, lie, lie, lie, why did she lie? because she's guilty. and then they will go into the forensics in the case. they will show the death band in her car, the smell of death in her car, the chloroform samplings in her car, it's a very circumstantial case, but the defense will have their day and if he can get a summation in without getting 500 objections from the prosecution and being scolded by the judge, i will be amazed because that's what i believe is going to happen. >> that's right. >> it's going to be tough for the defense. >> that's what's going to happen. i mean a judge has instructed the lawyers that during their closing arguments, that they must stick to evidence, so if you think about what jose baez presented in his opening statement, we're not going to see much of anything.
4:10 pm

4:47 pm
2008. 1,000 americans are added every day to this survey and then asked very specific questions. it comes in six major categories, it involves six major questions about life evaluation, entirely how are you doing now and how do you think you're going to be doing five years from now. and emotional health, how is life going or are you depressed? and physical problems and how they interfere with your daily life, and what are you doing about it? and how many sick days have you had in the past month as well. and a variety advertise of healthy behaviors, what kind of stress do you have at work, what is your boss like, what are your colleagues like and then a very important category, access to
4:48 pm
life's necessity. things like access to fresh water, a dentist and things like fresh fruit and produce. >> what does it mean if your well-being score is low? >> well, the scores come from the answers to all these questions that they ask. and the research behind the well-being index say that a low score correlates with a person that will have high demands on the health care system and will need more resources, because as americans get older and we are, there will be more and more need for these kinds of healthy resources. so younger people can adjust their life now and can monitor that with the well-being index are less likely to have problems down the road and more likely to enjoy the golden years. >> those who scored the highest in the well-being index, apparently they didn't lead in all the categories, tell us where they did score high and where's the room for
4:49 pm
improvement? >> going back to those six categories, seniors scored pretty low, physical health and you would expect that because your health deteriorates as you get old, life gets more complicated, but seniors are more resilient and many get themselves into a got held care system with good doctors and a supportive family and they can endure. some seniors, many seniors living alone or living on the economic fringe don't have access to all that they need to have a successful life. but the well-being index is a composite store, when you add all the seniors together, they still outscored and then younger scores right behind them. it's the middle aged folks that have the most problems. >> dr. bill, thank you very much. have a happy holiday weekend too. >> thanks very much. we'll talk politics now,
